Our school is busy preparing for this year’s Stand-Up Awareness Week which takes place from 14th -18th November 2022. This is an annual campaign coordinated by BelongTo​. This week is an opportunity for schools to celebrate and recognize their LGBTQ+ community​ and to show solidarity with young people and our colleagues to ensure they feel seen, heard, and safe​. 

Ensure everyone knows that biphobic, homophobic, and transphobic language and bullying will not be tolerated – main theme this year

This year we have established a Student Committee who will lead the planning of this week with our teachers. 

Recently at a staff meeting our staff undertook training in the area of LGBTQ+ and will be certified in this training also.
